Choosing the next tool or platform for your website can be a daunting task… so many options and considerations! After building hundreds of websites we’re biased towards WordPress, and here’s why you should be too.
WordPress is the most popular CMS (Content Management System) in the world. With over 4.5% of total internet market share, it’s the most commonly used tool for building websites today. Whether you’re a small business or a Fortune 500, WordPress is the ideal platform for marketing websites.
Below are 5 reasons why you should consider WordPress for your next project!
Ease of Use
One of the major considerations for any website is ease of use. WordPress offers one of the most user friendly interfaces available. Creating and managing website content is fast and easy, even for non-technical users. WordPress also offers an abundance of free help and tutorials across the web, so if you get stuck there’s a good chance someone has written an article on WordPress.org or StackedOverflow to help you out.
Plugins & Extensions
WordPress offers thousands of plugins and extensions for added functionality. For developers, this cuts down development time and drastically increases productivity. For non-technical users, this means there’s probably a plugin for “that new thing” you’re trying to add to your website. This is definitely one of its biggest selling points. Furthermore, the WordPress community is constantly adding new plugins and enhancing existing extensions to further improve the platform.
In addition to plugins, WordPress also offers complete flexibility in customizing the look and feel of your website (a.k.a. your theme). Many content management systems can be tricky to work with whereas WordPress makes customization a breeze. There’s also thousands of pre-made themes available in the open market for non-technic users.
WordPress comes with SEO benefits right out of the box. The platform was originally designed for blogging and SEO has been an influence in its architecture since day one. So if SEO is a big factor in your decision then WordPress is a no brainer.
Lastly, WordPress is 100% free! As an open source platform, it maintains strong community support and interest. Developers all over the world are always contributing in effort to keep it the premier open source platform for website development.
